Season 2 ABC


Ch 1: 2013 Tour Semi-Kick Off


2 weeks after New Year's...

"Austin, are you sure you want to go on this mini-tour for the next few weeks?" Ally asked, following him down the stairs of his house, his guitar in a case is in his hand.

"I told you, Ally. I've gotta get the first leg of this nation-wide tour going. I asked you to come too, but you said 'no' because you were worried about school."

"Aren't you?"

"Nah, I got all my assignments & notes for the next month so I can do them on the planes & buses. I can keep my grades up, & I know you're Valedictorian of your class right? You deserve a break," they moved towards the front door.

"Yeah, but you're leaving me without you, and the rest of you, for a month," she said, hugging him, to which he hugged back. He smiled proudly. "How am I going to cope without that?" she said, looking up at him.

He felt good about himself, knowing how much she loved him, in both senses of the word.

"Well, thanks for reassuring me, & boosting my self-esteem a bunch of levels, but don't worry. I feel the same. How am I gonna cope without your tight, hot body for a month? Believe me when I say that when I get back, we'll celebrate all over this place," he said, feeling excited. He kissed her passionately, then came back up. He let go & headed for the door, but then stopped after a few steps. He looked at her. "Being a celebrity is hard. It comes with the job."

"And being the girlfriend of a celebrity is just as hard. Just get back in one piece, 'kay?" she said, walking up to him.

"Don't worry. It's not like the adventure with the Doc, where I could die at any moment if I'm not careful. I'm gonna come back alive."

"Yeah, I guess, but don't do anything foolish."

"Don't worry. I'm gonna be smart about what I do," he walked to the door with her. They walked out on his front porch. He inhaled then exhaled. "Don't forget, I'm live-streaming on YouTube tonight, with Dez's help on the camera work & choosing, from a Doctor Who themed party. I'll be the 10th Doctor, rocking it on the stage."

"Ugh, what's with you and ridiculous costume parties?"

"Hey, Doctor Who's cool, as the Doc would say. Besides, all the rest of the musical guests are dressing as the various Doctors too. I just got to choose mine first. I just can't wait to see who's dressed up as the 1st & 3rd Doctors," he said & they both cracked up.

The tour bus pulled up in Austin's driveway & he started walking with his guitar & stuff, which was at the door.

"I'll call you tonight!"

"All right, see you later!"

"You too!"

He got on the bus & it pulled away.

"Well, Mr. Moon, on we go," the driver said.

"Yeah, I guess," Austin said as they drove away.

Austin was sitting in the car with the young woman from the 'Ocean Avenue' video. He was looking at her.

"So, what the fuck was that back there?"

"What?" she asked.

"You know, where you left me behind before I woke up," she pulled down her sunglasses.

"I don't need you, that's 'what.'"

"But you left me behind before we got back to my agency, as we agreed."

"Did you actually think I was serious about that?" she looked directly at him.

"It was an agreement that we shook on & we were out of options. Yeah, I did," he looked back out the front windshield & saw something shocking. "Stop!" he yelled.

"Why?"she said, looking forward. "Oh," she said, then stopped the car by stepping hard on the brakes. They looked out the windshield & saw an army of guys in suits.

"Mr. Austin-Moon," one of them said. "You will hand over the suitcase with the device, or suffer the consequences."

"Oh yeah?" Austin said. "Here," he said, opening the car door with the suitcase in his hand & throwing it in front of them. He got back in the car.

"What the fuck did you do that for?"

"Drive & turn to the left," he said, quietly, plugging in his seat belt.


"They won't bother us now that they have it. Keep calm, trust me, & just drive," she was confused, but did as he said.

They drove off to the left of where they were & the suit guys watched the car drive off. The lead guy then looked down at the case, bent down, & examined it. He then turned it so he could open it, unlocked it, then opened it slowly. He saw the device in it & smiled. He closed the case, picked it up by the handle, & stood back up. They all then teleported out of there.

It then went to Austin in the car looking out the back windshield. He saw the guys disappear, then turned around, put the back of his head to the headrest on the seat, closed his eyes, then exhaled.

"Ok, what the fuck is going on here?"

"Easy. This," he said, pulling down the collar of his white V-Neck T-shirt, revealing a device implanted in his chest.

"What's that?"

"The device from the briefcase, or, at least, a dummy version. When we got away from that base where it was being kept, I was originally planning on swapping this one with a 1 to 1 replicated fake my agency made so they wouldn't get suspicious too quickly. The device was always off until I activated it by accident when you were sleeping & it fused with me last night. I didn't know how to deactivate it, or if that would even be safe, so I just put the fake in the case & went to sleep."

"So there was no need to come after me."

"Well, I guess not, but you would've been in danger if I didn't. Plus, I needed a ride. Speaking of..." he got out his phone & dialed a number.

"Hello?" a guy asked on the other end.

"Hey, it's Austin. You ready?"

"Yeah, just get here," he hung up.

"Who was that?" she asked.

"A friend. Just keep driving & I'll explain."

There was a Star Wars wipe & they stopped outside of a garage.

"So, now that you've explained what we're doing here, is there anything else we need to worry about?" she asked as they got out of the car.

"Yeah, the guys chasing after me aren't with those suits. They're a wholly different faction, so they might be able to track us down eventually. I just hope we have enough time for this..." he said as they went up to the side door next to the garage door.

Austin knocked on the door in a secret knock & it unlocked for them. He opened the door & they went in.

"You ready?" the guy asked when they got in, working with a torch on a gadget.

"Yep," Austin answered.

"What about you?" he asked her after he turned around to face them.

"Yep," she answered.

"Good. Now, lay on the bed & try to go to sleep. If you need sleep inducers, they're in the pill container with a glass of water on the table beside the bed," he said, going back to work.

"All right."

"You sure you want this burden? If they take it from you, you could die. It's safer for your life if it's just removed from my body."

"Yes, but you need replacement skin tissue, bone marrow, & heart tissue, which we're not even sure the device will give you back. Besides, I'm a lot more capable of running & fighting when I don't have anything in my hands," she said, lying down on the bed.

"All right then," he said.

She closed her eyes.

"How much longer until that thing's ready?" Austin asked.

"No too much longer at the rate I'm going at," the guy said.

"Ok. We just need to get the transfer done before one of the factions tracks us down."

"Yes, I know. Time's a ticking bomb. Now let me work & let her fall asleep easily," the guy responded.

Austin turned his head from the guy to her, then walked towards her & sat in the chair on the wall next to the bed, waiting.

The song started up. It showed Austin & his band gearing up the song on a roof & shots of the guy working.

Whoa-oh-oh, Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh, Whoa-oh-oh

It showed shots of her getting to sleep as well.

From the get-go, I knew this was hard to hold
Like a crash, the whole thing spun out of control

The two guys from the last video were following a signal on a device in one of the guys' hand.

Oh, on a wire, we were dancing
Two kids, no consequences

The guy finished the gadget, then went over to Austin with a confident smirk on his face. Austin looked at him as they began the operation.

Pull the trigger without thinking,
There's only one way down this road

It showed the band on the roof.

It was like a time bomb set into motion;
We knew that we were destined to explode
And if I have to pull you out of the wreckage,

It showed the 2 guys seeing the back of the car outside the garage. They ran to it, then looked around for where they could be.

You know I'm never gonna let you go
We're like a time bomb

Austin & the other guy were getting ready to do the thing. The gadget was on the girl's chest, then the guy explained what to do to Austin.

Gonna lose it, let's defuse it
Baby, we're like a time bomb
But I need it, wouldn't have it any other way

Austin put his hand on the gadget & squeezed it. The energy from the device & the gadget synchronized, lighting up at a big intensity, & then suddenly turned off, shaking up the place a bit & knocking Austin back on his back. The other guy then helped him up after extending his hand. Austin then looked at his chest under his shirt & saw that the device was gone. The other guy then pulled down the girl's shirt a bit & they saw that it was now on her.

Well, there's no way out of this, so let's stay in
Every storm that comes also comes to an end
Oh, resistance is useless
Just two kids, stupid and fearless
Like a bullet, shooting the love-sick
There's only one way down this road

The 2 guys suddenly crashed in through a large window from above, then pulled out their handguns, pointing them at them. Austin quickly shook the girl, getting her to wake up. She saw what was going on & when the 2 guys shot at them, an energy barrier quickly surrounded them. The other guy then looked at her, as did Austin & she smiled. She then stood up & they got out after the other guy opened the garage door. The 2 guys then went down the stairs to try to catch them. They got to the car, but it wouldn't start, so they got out & ran down the alley they entered from.

It was like a time bomb set into motion;
We knew that we were destined to explode
And if I have to pull you out of the wreckage,
You know I'm never gonna let you go
We're like a time bomb
Gonna lose it, let's defuse it
Baby, we're like a time bomb
But I need it, wouldn't have it any other way

They entered a building through an unlocked door & went up the stairs to the roof with the 2 guys trailing them. It showed them running up the stairs with one of the guys following them.

Got my heart in your hands, like a time bomb ticking
It goes off, we start again
When it breaks, we fix it
Got your heart in my hands, like a time bomb ticking
We should know better, but we won't let go

They got to the roof, then started running, hopping from building to building one right in front of them, then to the right, but they got stopped by the other dude not following them & got cornered. The girl then opened her jacket with the device lit up. The 2 guys were slowly approaching them, handguns up.

It was like a time bomb set into motion,
We knew that we were destined to explode (destined to explode)
And if I have to pull you out of the wreckage,
You know I'm never gonna let you go (I'm never gonna let you go)
We're like a time bomb
Gonna lose it, let's defuse it
Baby, we're like a time bomb
But I need it, wouldn't have it any other way

Austin quickly grabbed their wrists & dragged them along & made them jump off the side of the building facing the ally. The band was on an adjacent rooftop performing, the video switching between various shots & angles of both.

Whoa-oh-oh, Whoa-oh-oh

Cut to black.
